Our Drug Law Services

The consequences of possessing a dangerous drug (even a small amount) may be severe and include imprisonment. A conviction may also negatively impact upon your employment, travel, education and ability to obtain finance.

In Queensland, it is a crime to produce a dangerous drug.  “Production” refers to all acts involved in producing a dangerous drug, including cultivation, packaging, manufacturing and preparing.

Supplying a dangerous drug is a serious criminal offence in Queensland.  The penalties range from a fine up to and including imprisonment.

Trafficking Dangerous Drugs is another term for supplying dangerous drugs.  In Queensland, it means that a person is in the business of supplying dangerous drugs for commercial gain.

Court ordered drug diversion is a penalty imposed by a court which is primarily aimed to be rehabilitative. It involves the person being referred to a drug information and education session, to deter the use of illicit drugs and future charges. It should not be confused with police drug diversion, which has similarities, but has distinct eligibility criteria and is not a court ordered penalty.

Drug offences, in addition to penalties of fines and jail time, can also be punished with periods of licence disqualification. For the best chance at keeping your licence, read more information at our Other Drug Offences page.
